Classic Queen is a 1992 compilation of songs by the English rock band Queen. It was issued in order to capitalise on the sudden Queen fever generated in the United States following the release of the movie Wayne's World. The album reached number four on the Billboard 200, and is certified three times platinum in the U.S, and five times platinum in Canada. Although critically acclaimed as an excellent compilation, it did not fit in with the previous Queen compilations. It overlapped both the 1981 Greatest Hits and the 1991 Greatest Hits II, and contained a few tracks not found in either of the previous releases; to remedy this situation, Hollywood Records re-released Greatest Hits in the U.S. only, containing two different tracks from the 1981 release but designed specifically to complement Classic Queen. Accumulated sales (Greatest Hits II and Classic Queen for the U.S. and Canada combined) are in excess of 19 million worldwide. Many of Queen's biggest hits, such as "Another One Bites the Dust", "We Will Rock You", "We Are the Champions" and "Don't Stop Me Now" , are missing from this compilation. There is also a video cassette released, but long out of print.Continue reading at Wikipedia...
